** George Stevens' ''Film/{{Shane}}'', as well as ''Film/HighNoon'', became the second yardstick for westerns as a serious genre. Both movies tried to create a more psychological approach to the genre which attracted it a broader audience than the usual BMovie westerns.

** While TV has seen some improvement, Western animated films still tend to be categorized as children's works, with a side of AllAnimationIsDisney. Very few "adult" Western animated films have been produced, and most of those are spin-offs of TV series. At least, that was the case before ''Film/SausageParty'' became an unexpected success in 2016.

* Who would want to be seen reading a fantasy novel in public? Grow up, you hopeless {{nerd}}. ''Literature/HarryPotter'' and ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' don't seem to count, even before they were republished with sombre covers to hide your shame. Before that there was ''Literature/{{Gormenghast}}'' and The Elric Saga.

* While Creator/{{Disney}} usually [[TropeMaker built the market for animation]] (sound cartoons with ''Steamboat Willie'', feature-length animation with ''Snow White'', computer-animated feature films by distributing ''Toy Story''), the [[UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation Disney Reinassance]] certainly broke many ghettos: animated movies were now huge moneymakers, critical darlings worthy of Best Picture nods, and with considerable star power in their voice acting.

Ah, the ghettos of fiction. [[PublicMediumIgnorance We're all familiar with them]]: [[AnimationAgeGhetto Cartoons are for kids]], (and Comic Books are for ''[[SarcasmMode slightly]]'' older kids,) [[SpeculativeFiction SpecFic]] [[SciFiGhetto is for nerds]], [[GirlShowGhetto Romance novels (and soaps) are for single women and housewives]], Rap is for gangstas, Classical Music is for snobs, New Media, ''especially'' [[UltraSuperDeathGoreFestChainsawer3000 Video Games]], [[NewMediaAreEvil are for unproductive deviants]], [[OldMediaAreEvil Printed works are for people with one foot in the grave]], etc.

** ''Film/Scream1996'' is credited for pulling the slasher subgenre out of its rut, films at that point known for being very formulaic and attracting few viewers outside of horror aficionados. ''Scream'' played on many of the genre's cliches, incorporated humor, cast bankable actors, and was generally enjoyable for a mass audience and pulled in many more demographics, becoming the first slasher film to break $100 million.
